Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday stirred a controversy when he claimed that Prime Minster Narendra Modi 'got a woman to defend him' on the Rafale debate. The Congress chief is now facing criticism for his sexist comment targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman over the Rafale deal with twiteratti going all out in their condemnation of Rahul Gandhi.

While Narendra Modi reprimanded Gandhi for insulting women of the country, BJP President Amit Shah demanded an apology from him. This remark of Gandhi did not go down very well with the Twitterati also. Rahul Gandhi was slammed for his remark.

The National Commission for Women also issued a notice to Gandhi over his statement.

Gandhi, while addressing a rally in Jaipur, said that “The watchman with a 56-inch chest [a reference to Modi] ran away and told a woman, Sitharaman ji, defend me.” Later, he also tweeted, "Stop shaking. Be a man and answer my question: Did the Air Force and Defence Ministry object when you bypassed the original Rafale deal?"
